ABOUT US


When it comes to traveling overseas or out-of-state, the biggest limitation is not money . . .

It is time.

Budget travel, mid-range travel or luxury travel is do-able pretty much anywhere in the world.

Once you get over the grand expense of airfare, you can often choose whether to stay in a 5-star hotel, a vacation home, a hostel or a campsite. Whether to go fine dining, to a low key diner or to a local market for baguette and brie. And whether to goeth by car, train, bus, boat or bike . . . or an adventurous combination of all five.

Which brings us back to time.

Unless you have a trust fund or a retirement fund and lead a life of leisure, there is never enough time to see all that a country, region, state or province has to offer.

It is because of this limitation that we turn to guidebooks, travel magazines and travel websites to discern a destination’s Must-See-Dos and unique experiences.

Unfortunately, the process of finding the right combination of guidebooks, magazines and websites and then burrowing through an avalanche of disparate tips, reviews and articles can be a black hole of a time suck unto itself.

This is where The YOLO Guide to Travel comes in.

We are a digital travel consultancy and indie publishing house on a mission to make travel planning quicker, easier and a more zen and enjoyable experience for worldly travellers.

We hope our Travel IQ app on iOS and Androidtravel guides and podcast will equip and inspire you to have fabulous and unforgettable adventures in the world’s most YOLO-worthy (You Only Live Once) destinations!



As Seen On



A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER


During my years-long, ongoing and torrid love affair with travel, I have planned many a sojourn to the world’s must see destinations, across 6 continents—from Australia to Argentina; Cairo to China; the Netherlands to New Zealand; Tahiti to Turkey.

For each faraway destination, I have spent a positively insane amount of time pouring over guidebooks, magazines and websites to map out an itinerary of Must-See-Dos based on the limited vacation time at my disposal; whilst also researching and discovering new travel how-tos and best practices.

Others may spend the bulk of their free time watching sports or skiing or gardening or volunteering.

I, on the other hand, have spent the bulk of my free time planning one trip after another . . . and another . . . and another . . . whilst working demanding jobs at Fortune 500 companies.

Looking back, I wish I had had something like The YOLO Guide to Travel during the planning and in situ phases of each of those such trips.

But one traveller’s loss (mine) is another traveler’s gain (yours)!

I wish you happy travels, adventurous discovery and a lifetime of incredible memories.

Yours in Wanderlust,

Taj
